USF1 has launched an official website, including a video showing progress on its 2010 car.

The new American entry's sporting director Peter Windsor recently denied Bernie Ecclestone's claim that it might not contest next year's world championship.

"F1 has not only survived the global recession, it is expanding still further, with new races in new countries and a 26 car grid," said part of the welcome message.

A video posted to USF1's official Youtube channel, meanwhile, shows the progress at the Charlotte headquarters, including the construction of the car's monocoque.
